Brazil visa information
New Zealand passport holders don’t require a visa to enter Brazil, but make sure you have a passport valid for at least six months and a return ticket. Proof of sufficient funds might just be requested on arrival so make sure you have enough dosh! You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days.
Working holiday visa
Brazil has a reciprocal working holiday visa arrangement with New Zealand which allows a maximum of 300 18-30 year olds to live and work in Brazil for up to 12 months. While you're there you can work for up to three months with each employer and travel insurance in compulsory.
There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer in Brazil. If you fancy joining the party, why not try your hand at assisting with Carnival preparation in Rio? There’s also the option of renovating favellas, rarely seen by travellers, or the opportunity to do community work with AIDS and HIV children. Or is work experience at a surf school more your thing?
